CIY: Pear Painted Mug

So, I decided the pear mug would be my inspiration.  I figured it was really just a big blob, so painting it free hand wouldn’t be all that difficult.

I actually bought my mug from Crate and Barrel, but since it was not painted by a designer, it was only $3.95!  Throw in some paint for another $2.oo and you have your own version of the Marimekko Paaryna White and Green Cup mug for less than $6.oo!

Supplies:

– Mug (I bought mine from Crate and Barrel)

– Martha Stewart Muti-Surface Satin Paint

– Paint Brush

– Permanent Marker

CIY Pear Painted Mug{Step 1:} Paint the base of your pear on your mug.  It does not have to be perfect as it is basically a big blob. Let your paint dry.  Repeat this until you have nice coverage on your mug.

CIY Pear Painted Mug{Step 2}: Once your paint is dry, grab your permanent marker and draw in your stem.  Put a little star at the bottom of your pear.

    Very interested in doing this, but will the paint come off when I wash it? It seems like your using acrylic paint which happens to come off with water.
